Those were just a few of the words from Dennis Kucinich at the house debate on bringing home our troops from Afghanistan. He and a few others covered all of the criminal reasons for our being there. From Afghan corruption and narco-trafficking to pipelines and the economic calamities of war here at home, many key points were made.
From what I watched, not a single opponent of the resolution, both democrats and republicans, addressed any of the issues brought up. The speakers, for and against war, including Mr. Kucinich, certainly didn't miss the opportunity to say the key words of al qaeda and 9/11, over and over and over.
Without the lies of 9/11 and al qaeda as our magical enemy this sham of a debate wouldn't even be taking place.
Oh yeah, there was a vote. 356 nays.
Permanent war means just that.
